Motorcyclists know that even when vehicles are moving at low speeds, motorcycle accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, drivers of other vehicles often fail to appreciate the injury risks involved in motorcycle accidents. As a result, many drivers are not as cautious as they should be when sharing the road with motorcycles.

Motorcycle accidents can happen in a split second, often with no notice or warning. Even when motorcyclists drive cautiously and defensively, some accident circumstances cannot be anticipated or avoided. See below for common causes of motorcycle accidents.
Several parties may be responsible for your injuries and damages, depending on the cause and circumstances of your accident. The defendant may be a negligent driver who caused your accident. If your accident was the result of a bike defect, the motorcycle manufacturer or seller might be liable. If your accident was caused by dangerous road conditions, a government entity or other party responsible for the condition and maintenance of the road may be to blame.
Motorcycle accident claims must be filed within the applicable statute of limitations so that you do not lose your right to seek compensation. If a municipality or other government entity is responsible for your accident, you may have additional filing requirements and a shorter statute of limitations.
